The Conservative Friends of Africa / Scotland required a website for their new organisation. The site is designed using a WordPress theme which I customised by changing colours and layout.
WordPress allows clients to update Posts and Pages themselves, giving freedom to expand their own content. There is also an Instagram feed plugin giving recent posts from that social media platform.
The site was designed to pass most WCAG 2.1 AA standards. I especially paid attention to the colour and boldness of any text on colour backgrounds(blue or red), making sure it was highly visible to people with low vision or colour blindness.
A new website was created for T Cosgrove Plumbing and Heating based in Clarkston Glagow.
They offer a varied and comprehensive service and installation of all gas appliances and a plumbing service to cover most plumbing emergencies.
The website has a smartphone friendly design which is modern and accessible. My initial design had the headings with too light a colour which failed at WCAG 2.1 AA level, but this was fixed by darkening the font and now passes the WCAG 2.1 AA criteria.
Please visit Tony’s website(external website) if you are in the Greater Glasgow area and require any plumbing or heating services.
Nicola Hopkinson of Ivory & Brass provides private music tuition in piano and brass instruments.
Nicola needed a new website and hosting package. A modern responsive website was the best option to promote her music lessons online.
After feedback from my client I came up with a suitable colour scheme for her website. Next we also looked at appropriate photographs for the site.
A full width piano photograph was chosen as the main image on the front page. My client then took some photographs of her room where she teaches and these were added into the site. Finally we added some appropriate stock images.
The final stage was to make the site completely fluid and responsive for all Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops and Desktop computers.
Once my client was happy with the website I transferred the domain to my hosting and uploaded the website to it’s new home.
Shree Boutique Hair and Beauty Salon are based in Bearsden near Glasgow.
A responsive design was one of their main requirements to enable smartphone browsing clients to view their services easily.
Adobe Illustrator enabled me to create a new logo for the business based on ideas they had suggested. Choosing the font was crucial and my client had a certain look in mind. I also had to use the pen tool to create the Shree icon.
The site was created using Dreamweaver utilising Bootstrap for efficient responsiveness. CSS3 was used extensively in creating the look and feel of the website.
I was asked to develop and design a new website for Clyde Homes who design and build Modular buildings and wooden timber homes.
My client required a modern design to reflect their new Glasgow based business.
They also required access to edit content and with this in mind I chose a WordPress CMS based website. More and more clients wishing a new web design also want the option of updating the content via CMS. WordPress is by far the most popular option.
I customised the colour, design and responsiveness of the website using CSS and a flexible template.
I also edited their logo to stand out better on a dark background.
Asset Environmental are an established family business specialising in drainage issues including unblocking drains, sinks, toilets
I used Dreamweaver to create the website and added in a Bootstrap menu for full responsive and device compliance. I also used Fireworks to come up with some colour blends. I then extracted the CSS from the Fireworks blend and added the code to the CSS file in Dreamweaver.
